    He is the one getting technical fouls and giving them opportunities to get more points.
    This.

    Every point counts. I love that he is standing up for them, but do it in a more subtle way. Ron Artest was always good with that, well until....nevermind.

    DG needs to relax some, I don't like the tough guy act much. Although I do love him sticking up for his teammates.

    Great shot to finish the half by Barbosa. I think that makes him 1-38 in those situations.

    West only player 10 minutes. He should be crazy fresh coming out.

    You're only looking at the short term result, a free throw. Granger is pumping up the fans, continuing the "We won't back down" mentality, and sticking up for his teammates and franchise. I also don't think if all he does is have words with Wade, that's necessitates a T.

    I'm OK with Danny doing what he's doing. He knows the line he's walking, he's not gonna get tossed and in this series our team has been channeling that emotion well. Seems like a bit of a waste right before the half though since we can't play off of it for a few minutes.

    Solid first half. Take it up a notch in the second and we're sitting pretty.

    Wade and LeBron on the other hand. Grabbing Hibberts hand and tugging at it after the play is over defiantly deserves a T, throwing elbows (no matter if they miss or not) deserves T's. Getting in a shouting match deserves nothing if you back away immediately after the refs get involved, which is what Granger has done.

    It has got to be demoralizing for the Heat to continually play from behind and then when they do get the lead the Pacers promptly go on some 10 - 0 run and put it right back up at comfort level.

    Other random thoughts: The crowd is loud but it looked way cooler with all the Gold in the stands. 2 more quarters boys hold it together on your homecourt.

    @alanhahn
    Granger has grown up this season to where he is taking ownership of his team. Emotional, protecting teammates, etc. The David West Effect?

    If there's a game 6 (hope not) the yellow shirts definitely need to come back.

    Last game, Pacers were barely mentioned during the halftime report. This time they were...because they were disappointing, and those guys were super impressed with the Heat. What? I understand the Heat are the bigger media draw—that's cool—but at least try to be discussing what's really happening on the court...

    Granger needs to cool it on the techs because we can't afford to lose him, but I like what he's doing.

    ABC halftime crew managed to say only positive things about the Heat, and all negative things about the Pacers. True masters of their craft.
    We got a new weapon this time around: a Lance forged on the Isle de Coney, built for piercing trolls and false kings alike! Prince Paul rides with this Lance at hand, from the West fortress on Mt. Hibb. He shall pierce the demon heart of your misguided Cavalier, and he shall claim his crown.

    Is there any chance of West being off the the game's rhythm by being benched early in the game due to foul problem?

    I'm appalled by how terrible, misleading and biased that was. Apparently, so is the rest of the objective media.

    I doubt we'll see the complete reserves squad again in the 2nd half.

    They can be biased all they want. As long as the Pacers win....f**k em especially Jon Barry. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a Heat shirt on under that suit

    I love all that. Again, get in the players head without getting the T though.

    It did deserve a T, the refs were quick to make sure the Wade/Hibbert thing didn't go anywhere, then Granger comes out of no where and starts it back up.

    Again, what Granger is doing is awesome. I love the fact that he isn't backing down and sticking up for his teammates. I just think there is a better way to go about it. If he reacts, and waves his arms - the crowd gets CRAZY into it, that potentially gets in the refs ear. Next time LeBron throws that bow, he needs to overreact(not at LeBron), the refs already know about it at this point, if it happens again thats going to get noticed.

    I understand not wanting to give up points, I really do. But can we all agree that emotionally engaged Granger is soooooooo much better to have than disengaged Granger?
